Goodreads Summary: Sherry and her family have lived sealed in a bunker in the garden since things went wrong up above. Her grandfather has been in the freezer for the last three months, her parents are at each other’s throats and two minutes ago they ran out of food.I love the cover of The Other Life. There are a lot of current and upcoming dystopian novels that have glamorous models in high fashion dresses on the cover and while I like those covers, there is something so intriguing about the eerie cityscape that feels, well, dystopian. It just draws me in and makes the book a must read for me! The cover of The Other Life sets the mood and the summary is exciting too. I am really looking forward to this one. What books are you waiting on?
Sherry and her father leave the safety of the bunker and find a devastated and empty LA, smashed to pieces by bombs and haunted by ‘Weepers’ - rabid humans infected with a weaponized rabies virus.
While searching for food in a supermarket, Sherry’s father disappears and Sherry is saved by Joshua, a boy-hunter. He takes her to Safe-haven, a tumble-down vineyard in the hills outside LA, where a handful of other survivors are picking up the pieces of their ‘other lives’. As she falls in love for the first time, Sherry must save her father, stay alive and keep Joshua safe when his desire for vengeance threatens them all.
